secretary. that includes administrative assistant. almost four million women work in thating it. being a secretary was the top job back in 1950. so why so many secretaries still? an expert on professionals said the development of computers and the internet made business more efficient and you need folks who can use those tools. full time secretaries and assistants make about $34,000. that does it for me. brooke baldwin continues with cnn newsroom. tonight, cnn holds a town hall on guns in america. you are about to get a preview of the questions everyone is asking. i'm brooke baldwin. the news is now. >> please make the right decision on behalf of newtown. >> a doctor who tried to save lives after the sandy hook massacre joins parents to beg for change.
2:01pm
plus, cash, prostitutes and a raid. a powerful senator facing serious accusations involving sex. and live during this hour, beyonce and the saga over her lip synching. her super bowl news conference. >> here we go with thursday. i'm brooke baldwin. a manhunt in texas after a person dedicated to fighting crime becomes the victim of a shooting. the prosecutor was fatally shot outside this courthouse here. this is kaufman, texas. to give you the lay of the land, this is about 30 miles southeast of dallas. the search is on right now for two gunmen. cnn is tracking the developments here on this one and let's start from scratch with me. what do we know? >> the kaufman county sheriff's
2:02pm
office told us the assistant district attorney was gunned down and shot in a nearby parking lot outside of the county courthouse. we don't know the motive or if there is multiple suspects. they are looking for an older ford sedan-type car and possible suspect or suspects still on the loose. a local school have been on lockdown. >> they are coming from the previous cases, trying to see if anyone would have been this angry at him. what more do we know about him and his work? >> that is say good point. they are pouring through the cases and that's a point made high up to us. they are looking at the cases and we know he was previously, the district attorney at dallas county. he had recently transferred to kaufman count tow take the prosecutor role. we don't know much else about him. an adult male, he was according to the sheriff's office, very well-liked. we know that about him. >> as soon as you learn more, we will pop you back on tv.
2:03pm
thank you very much. also happening today in chicago, gun violence as you know is spiraling out of control. the city's mayor rahm emmanuel putting more police officers on the ground. take a listen. >> a report was issued which i asked my staff to review with superintendent mckarthy and his staff with the idea of moving an additional 200 individuals and move them out on to the street. >> this comes after this 15-year-old girl who performed at president obama's inauguration was shot and killed at a park. the 42nd murder this month, making it the deadliest january in a decade. ted rowlands is in chicago with more on this story. with this announcement explain how this is supposed to work. >> basically the mayor announced today along with the superintendent of police here in chicago they are moving 200 desk
2:04pm
jobs. cops that are fully trained to be cop who is have been sitting behind desks and putting them back on the streets. they are going to saturate the areas of high crime in the city of chicago. let's be clear. the crime rate went down 8% and the murder rate continued to go up 30%. they are taking place in specific areas and they use this officer with hundreds of others moved on to the streets to saturate the high crime areas to try to put a dent in this murder rate that is going out of control. they need the community's help. what they are trying to do is use the death of this 15-year-old to really galvanize the communities and help them out. help them out with giving kids other things to do and recording what they see when a crime takes place. >> to underscore the point with the death, we said this is the 42nd murder this month in chicago. it's really her death that is
2:05pm
like this tipping point, right? >> this happened before. a 7-year-old that was killed late last year and selling candy on her front lawn and shot and killed. when these innocent victims are killed in the crossfire, it does capture the attention of chicago and the country and they are hoping to use that and her parents are fully behind this. they were on cnn this morning to use her death to really motivate people to change. one of the biggest changes is getting the people who saw something to come forward and help police because the murderers are running loose. they are not being convicted because there no witnesses who will help police out. this case in particular, there were ten people there when she was shot and no arrest yet. they need the public's help to get these convictions. >> awful. ted rowlands in chicago, thank you. >> tension is spreading across the mideast. in fact over the last 22 months, we have been watching and
2:06pm
reporting on the crisis unfolding inside syria. now a deadly air strike from a neighboring country. let me show you where it happened. this defense resource center northwest of the capital city of damascus, the country behind this hit is real. here's what we have been told happened. these planes struck this truck convoy. the convoy was headed to lebanon. they were transporting surface to air missile to the ally, hezbollah. we are hearing from iran and it issues a vague threat to retaliate over this attack. here to walk us through, i want you to talk to me about iran, lebanon, the relationship between the countries and who has the most to gain and lose. >> happy to talk. first, listen to what the un secretary has to say. they say at this time he doesn't
2:07pm
have details of the reported incident and not in a position to verify what happened. that's part of the problem. we don't know what happened here. we know there was an israeli strike. the syrians are saying it was corrected at the research facility that everybody knows is just along damascus here. everybody knows that it was also storage depot for weapons. beyond that, if they were bound for hezbollah, they came from iran. the iranian arms, were they owned by hezbollah and scored in syria? we don't know. that's one factor that has got to be considered here. in any event the israelis don't want them in possession of the more advanced surface to air missiles that can threaten air action by the israelis against
2:08pm
hezbollah. >> we have been covering this crisis within syria. this was a weapon transfer within the convoy from syria to lebanon. why would syria want to give up weapons? >> maybe they didn't belong to them or perhaps -- there is a lot of things we don't know. or perhaps syria can no longer protect them. in the statement issued yesterday they made it clear that this had been a target of the opposition groups on several occasions, trying to get to it. it's known that the cia is trying to get to chemical weapons and the advanced weaponry to make sure it doesn't fall into the wrong jihadist hands. they are trying to control that. syria is fighting a war. they are no longer able to protect the weapons stores that they decide now is the time to move it to hezbollah. >> thank you very much. days here before the super bowl, a major distraction for the san francisco 49ers after one of the
2:09pm

>> pa. >> the biggest game in football, the clash of the titans and the super bowl, time for the teams to focus on playing the big day. talk trash and put on fame faces. get ready to take the title. one of the teams faces a huge distraction. the quarterback for the san francisco 49ers doing damage control here. he is now apologizing for something he said to a comedian earlier this week on media day. we will get to that apology. you have to see what he said that caused quite the uproar. >> what are about gay guys? any of them approach you. >> i don't do the gay guys.
2:13pm
i don't do that. >> any on the 49ers. >> they're ain't got no gay guys. can't be with that sweet stuff. >> sorry that true? they might be able to play well? >> no. you can't be in the looker room -- no. >> it has to keep it a secret? >> you have to come out years later after that. >> good idea. >> that is chris culliver, quarterback. the first to support a national campaign to help gay teens cope with bullying. >> something you should never experience is bullying and being pressured into being someone or something you are not. >> the san francisco 49ers are proud to join it gets better.org to let all lgbt teens know it gets better. >> now the apology. here is the formal statement issued by culliver.
2:14pm
the derogatory comments i made were a reflection of thoughts in my head, but they are not how i feel. it has taken me seeing that in print to realize they are hurtful and ugly. those discriminating feelings are truly not in my heart. i apologize to those who i have hurt and offended and pledge to learn and grow from this experience. >> he will learn about himself and i saw a statement and made a pledge to grow from it. it will affect him and i hope and pray it affects him in a positive way. >> 49ers coach jim har bow. take a look at this. you see these reporters? this is a media crush around him. here he is. chris culliver when he sat down to answer questions this
2:15pm
morning. >> what are do you want people to know about you? >> i don't have no differences in none of the sexualities. just like that. like i said, that's not what i feel in my heart. i want equal in any type of way. that's not how i feel. >> chris culliver for the san francisco 49ers feeling an hour of questions about his feelings about gays in football. just ahead as we mentioned of the biggest football game of his life. we have former player and wade davis, former player. atlanta here in new york respectively. welcome to both of you. wade davis, let me begin with you. this is personal. you played for the titans and -- >> i played cornerback. >> same position. when you heart his remarks, did it surprise you, his tone?
2:16pm
>> for did sort of surprise me. i was deeply saddened. i thought we moved a little further ahead in the conversation. i thought that guys would think a little bit before they spoke. i think the fact that he was talking to a comedian, he was trying to be a little funny. it came out horrific and inflammatoryy and i believe he understands the harm his words caused. >> wade davis, this is personal for you because you came out officially in a publication in june of last year. you finished playing back in 2004. why didn't you come out while you were playing? >> i didn't come out because i grew up with the ideology that i could never be a gay athlete from the time i was 7 years old plag playing a game of football. i thought my sexuality and the game of football didn't mix. i'm trying now to teach people that you can be who you want to be and play any sport or do any
2:17pm
career. >> wade, stay there. i will come back to you. let me cope this up to you. how many years did you play are? >> years. >> i didn't realize that there has never been an openly gay active nfl player. only after they played like wade. as you played, did you know of anyone who was gay and not open about it? pa. >> the situation that was the impetus for this, i played with him at stanford. one of the most kind and gentle men i ever met. to hear there was an altercation about it was uncharacteristic and surprising. what you hear wade talk about are the pressures. the scrutiny thaw know is waiting for you if that were to come out. as antiquated and wrong as it may be, the comments made by mr. culliver are a microcosm of the thought and understanding of what homosexual players were to
2:18pm
face. >> this is not just the nfl, but the big three. nba as well. describe the feeling of having to be closet and not being able to be your true self. you are good buddies and players and describe the scrutiny thaw underwent for years. >> to be honest, i never faced scrutiny because no one knew i was gay. there was a feeling that the idea that you are a gay man won't be accepted. i think this is something that you grow up with. it's not something they feel that was perpetuated, but something i had in my mind in high school and college and i carried it on to the nfl. >> when does it change? we are in 2013. >> for changes by having these conversations. i think some of us in a way should thank chris because now we are talking about homophobia in sports before the biggest
2:19pm
game of the year. without that, these conversations would not be happening. in a way he did us a favor by talking about it and say this problem still exists. >> what about as i was watching the clip, you had chris saying the comments and he is laughing as well. >> i think wade touched upon it. this conversation is key. it forces us to dig deeper and look at the issue despite the comments. it must be known this is not every nfl player or organization or team that has that approach and understanding. there players who play for the raven this is sunday in the super bowl who have been outspoken about gay rights and equality. that's something that needs to be focused on. there leaders in regards to this issue. >> wade davis, i want to ask about this. you chuckled it off. did that strike you as harmful at all? >> that's the biggest problem.
2:20pm
people will stand by and be bystanders to hateful language. one of the digest issues i see is that there people who identified straight who won't say i'm against homophobia. that should be easier to have a gay player come out. it should be easier for the players to say i'm against homophobia. that's not happening. i think that's a bigger problem than not having a gay player. >> so interesting about thanking chris culliver for his words because we made this into a national conversation moving forward. >> thank you for having me. >> guys, i appreciate it. new details on the standoff. still unfolding in alabama. this 5-year-old is being held hostage in a bunker there. now neighbors say they warned police about the suspect years ago. a live report from alabama next. [ male announcer ] this is sheldon, whose long dy setting up the news

[ male announcer ] the capital one cash rewards card gives you 1% cash back on every purchase plus a 50% annual bonus on the cash you earn.
2:22pm
it's the card for people who like more cash. what's in your wallet? i usually say that.
2:23pm
being held hostage by a stranger who snatched him from the school bus and dragged him to the homemade underground bunker near midland city,
2:24pm
alabama. we are also hearing ominous reports about this man who has been holding this child. neighbors identify him as jimmy lee dikes. he is 65 years of age, a retired trucker, vietnam war veteran. this is mark from the southern poverty law center. he tracks hate groups and others on the fringes of society. hear what he was told by the investigator in this case. >> he said that officers after speaking to neighbors and acquaintances of jimmy lee dikes described him as being very strongly anti-government in views. anti-america, whatever that may mean. he also described him as a survivalist. >> the police and fbi and homeland security are on the scene as they have been. the better part of the last three days outside of the bunker. so is george howell. we know that this little boy is 5 going on 6 pretty shortly.
2:25pm
he has adhd and asperger's syndrome. any word how he is doing? >> we are all hanging on the last word we got from investigators. we are supposed to get a 1:00 update. we are led to believe what we were told. this boy is physically unharmed. the 5-year-old still in the bunker and physically unharmed. that is good news as we continue to go through this thing. investigators say their negotiations are ongoing and when it comes to the medications, the investigator said they were able to get the medication to the young boy. they were able to get crayons and a coloring book to him. two things he specifically asked for. it is at least a sign that they are still talking to mr. dikes and have a line of communication. >> what are about this mr. dikes? what more do we know about him and this bunker he apparently had been digging for quite
2:26pm
sometime? >> i spoke with a neighbor who said in december he fired a pistol at him and his family. this neighbor had been on the property before and described this bunker as being 15 feet by 15 feet wide, anywhere from 8 to 12 feet deep. he said he saw dikes digging on the property for the last year and a half or two years since he moved on to the property. when you talk to other neighbors about jimmy dikes, they describe him as a reclusive fellow and worried about alien abductions and a lot of people went out of their way to avoid him. we also learned that mr. dikes had other brushes with the law. in 1995 we know he was charged with improper exhibition of a firearm, but that case was dismissed. he was also arrested back in 2001 for illegal possession of
2:27pm
marijuana. under 20 grams. he had other brushes with the law. he was supposed to be in court to face a menacing charge for allegedly firing a pistol at the neighbor. >> over the dirt road between the neighbors. >> right. >> thank you. let us know if anything changes here on the status of this young boy. hopefully he ends up a-ok. hours after the deadly stormed ripped through, another extreme event moving in. which areas will get hit next. so, we all set? i've got two tickets to paradise! pack your bags, we'll leave tonight. uhh, it's next month, actually... eddie continues singing: to tickets to... paradiiiiiise! no four. remember? whoooa whooaa whooo! you know ronny, folks who save hundreds of dollars by switching to geico sure are happy.

2:37pm
>> brand-new, china now blacking out cnn's reporting in the new york times and hacking. chinese hackers reportedly stole e-mail passwords for every single "new york times" employee. the newspaper said they were used to access the e-mail of the bureau chief. the hackers wanted the names of people providing information for articles on the wealth accumulated by the chinese premier's family. the paper's claims are irresponsible accusations lacking solid proof.
2:38pm
before we talk to the "new york times" interview, this happens period cally, china is watching cnn on air with the finger on the button. >> whenever there is a report that could be construed as being critical of the government, we go black. in this case we went black in china and we learned this from our source there is in the staff for to seven minutes. while i was talking about this with the information officer and the head of the cyber security firm. >> so during this conversation, me what the conversation was. >> they are saying that the chinese government hacked the computers and entered the system and you mentioned that they got the passwords of journalists with the "new york times." mainly i think according to the "new york times," they were trying to figure out what the shanghai bureau and the chinese-based correspondents had in terms of sources for a story
2:39pm
on the wealth a coupled by the former premier. the big question is of course, my first question to the "new york times" chief information officer is does that mean that the chinese government obtained access to lists of sources? that could endanger the safety of people who cooperated. >> he said? >> he said no. >> he said no according to him. no sensitive information was compromised. they essentially contacted at&t to try to gain access to the network and the way that the chinese government according to them was attacking to try to trace it back. >> so quickly what about the subscribe subscribers? >> they are trying to reassure the customer that is no sensitive data was accessed. i said this. when i write an e-mail and i
2:40pm
don't know about you, i travel in other parts of the world, i pretty much always assume that is going to be readable. absolutely. i make sure and i make 100% sure if i am talking to sources in the mideast whose lives might be in danger if they are talking to reporters, they do not come within 100 feet of my e-mail. you never know when your information can be access. you saw it there. >> incredible. thank you very much. this tragedy at the x games. this dare devil stunt went terribly wrong and we learned caleb morris's family is reacting to his death. excuse me, sir i'm gonna have to ask you to power down your little word game. i think your friends will understand. oh no, it's actually my geico app...see?

eastern here on cnn. top of the hour, i'm brooke wald win. breaking news out of atlanta, georgia. another school shooting to tell you about. ariel footage from the atlanta affiliates. let me be crystal clear. we exercise caution reporting only what we know to be sure. this is according to the affiliate and according to their conversation with the atlanta fire department. two people have been shot at the middle school in south atlanta. if you know the area, south of downtown. a 14-year-old student has been shot and a teacher has been shot. i don't know if the shooter is still active and still in the school or has been apprehended. mike brooks just sat down to talk to me, but sir, let me
3:01pm
bring you in. what do you know? >> i hear from two of my sources that apparently they had two in custody, but i have to confirm that to make sure. that's the latest i'm hearing from price middle school. there was the 14-year-old teacher. one was taken to grady memorial hospital and the other to the atlanta medical center. unknown conditions. >> as soon as we get more, we will come back to the shooting situation in atlanta. stay with me. as we hear about this in atlanta, the final month of a chicago teenager's heart breakingly short is now part of a debate on gun control. they are taking a step to curb the violence overtaking the streets. 15-year-old pendleton performed in front of crowds in washington just a few weekends ago with the president's inauguration. flash forward to a week later and she gets shot in the back at a chicago park.
3:02pm
her father says the honors student and school majorette is so excited to be part of the president's big day. >> it was one of the greatest things, she was so excited. she was really excited to meet the president and be there. a part of the inauguration. she had been talking about it way before the inauguration. way before the election. >> her godfather told cnn she was mistakenly hit in a gang shooting. >> the way he approached everybody seeing this guy coming with a gun, everyone tried to get away. this is the ideal neighborhood where this happened. just like most cities and i would imagine most major metropolitan cities, you have the niche neighborhoods and if you go too far, a mile to the
3:03pm
left or a mile south or east, you can run into the bad neighborhoods. where this happened, that was an ideal community. this is a place where a lot of people from the southside would like to live. >> 15iary old apparently has been a victim of a she tried to stay away from and pushed others to do the same as this you tube clip shows. >> this commercial is informational for you and your future children. so many children out there in gangs, it is your job to say no to gangs and yes to a great future. >> her murder is the 42nd in chicago this month, making at this time deadliest january in a decade. the murder rate jumped 30% in the last year. chicago's mayor rahm emmanuel making a major announcement. he is going to be putting 200 more officers on the street. >> they issued a report of which i asked immediately my staff to
3:04pm
review with superintendent mccarthy and his staff of an idea of moving an additional 200 individuals doing desk and administrative work out on to the street. >> the mayor hopes the teen's death will convince communities to cooperate with the police, president obama is hoping her death will bring nationwide reform to gun control. this too in regard to her death. the problem is that a huge proportion of those guns come in from outside chicago. if you are just creating a bunch of pockets of gun laws without having unified systems, for example, background checks, it will be a lot harder for an individual community to protect itself from this kind of gun violence. that is precisely why we think it's important for congress to act. that was the president in that interview with univision. guns and gun control in the spotlight across the country. is there a solution? join anderson cooper in his
3:05pm
debate in guns under fire. ac 3 strict special airs tonight. set the dvr. watch it live at 8:00 eastern right here on cnn. and a 5-year-old boy is now in his third day being held hostage by a stranger who snatched him from a school bus and dragged him in his homemade bunker in alabama. we are hearing reports about the man who is holding the child. neighbors identify him as jimmy lee dikes. he is 65 years of age. he is a retired trucker. a vietnam war veteran. i want to you listen to a man who tracks hate groups and others on the fringes of society. he talked with an investigator in this case. >> he said that officers after speak to neighbors and acquaintances have described him as being very strongly anti-government in his views.
3:06pm
as you said, anti-america, whatever that may mean. he also described him as a survivalist. >> dikes allowed police to send coloring books and crayons for the boy. they also gave medication for him because he has aspergers and adhd. mike brooks is here from hln. hello, sir. obviously if the guy is allowing crayons and coloring books, that has to be a great sign. >> it's 8 great sign. he is not going to allow anything without a negotiation. the former s.w.a.t. operator, that's the way it usually goes. we don't know of any demands he is making. what is the motor for this? was it because he was supposed to be in court yesterday for a men acing charge? we don't know. as the former negotiator, as
3:07pm
long as it's ongoing and as long as there is a dialogue and they are allowing the boy's medication in coloring books and crayons, that's a great sign as far as i'm concerned. >> we are not in on the specifics, but put yourself in the police shoes. this is day three of the kid being held in the bunker. what might police in a situation like this be asking for? >> it depends. number one, you want to make sure that boy is safe. there is no sign so far that he is being harmed in any way. some people asked how do they know that? they wouldn't say it unless they thought it was true. if they thought he was being harmed, they would have an emergency assault plan and try to end the situation and bring the boy out. as long as you have dialogue going, time is on your side. they are watching closely what's going on in that bunker. a lot of people say you have to
3:08pm
sleep. this is a bunker. it's underground. there is probably one way in and way out. they have food. apparently there is electricity and the little boy can watch tv. some people are saying you yank the electricity. you don't want to do that and exacerbate the situation. >> why a 5-year-old? i know you don't have the answer to that, but have you heard of a 5-year-old hostage? >> he wanted to try to get two children, but the brave bus driver stopped it. the boy fainted and he was able to have no resistance from the boy to take him with him. as long as dialogue is going, that's a good sign. >> if you are just joining us, about the situation at least now we are hearing them talk about the atlanta school shooting in south atlanta according to a police source in atlanta. we now know the shooter is in custody. we know that two people
3:09pm
according to the atlanta fire department have been shot. a 14-year-old student and a teacher. you had information on where they went? >> one went to the atlanta medical center and one to grady memorial hospital. we don't know their conditions. >> as soon as we get more information, we will let you know. thank you. >> more than a week after the snowmobile maneuver that left him clippinging to life. caleb moore has died. he was competing in aspen and before we show you the video as to what happened leading up to this, you may want to turn away. you don't have to watch. he was trying to do this back flip when he couldn't rotate enough before the landing. the skis dug into the ground and that snowmobile 450 pound machine slammed into his chest and head. cnn's brian todd has been following the story for us. the family, your hearts go out
3:10pm
to them. this is a young guy and they are thankful for the support from his fans. >> they are. they issued a statement thanking them for support. caleb moore's family sending word that the 25-year-old has died as a result of that injury at the x games. he is now the first athlete ever to die as a result of an injury at the x games. brooke mentioned it was a week ago today that the 450 pound snowmobile came crashing down on top of him as he attempted to land the back flip. he was diagnosed with a concussion and then had bleeding around his heart. complications from the surgery led to a brain injury. we contacted espn and the network said they are saddened by his passing and thoughts and prayers are with his family. espn and others involved in the
3:11pm
extreme sports events have come under criticism. many people say they are too dangerous. sebastian landry who specialized in features told the "new york times" last year that injuries in the sport made him lose interest in filming and made it seem like every time they went to the mountains, someone went to the hospital. 18 years, we have worked closely on safety issues with athletes. course designers and other experts. still when the world's best compete at the highest level, risks remain. he was a-time medalist and landed four times previous. we were reporting on the accident and they are taking a lot of pains to make the games as safe as possible. >> something i wondered about when you watch the video after the crash, you see that he gets up. he gets up and walks around and
3:12pm
seems like he is okay. what happened? >> he did get up. he was lucid enough to ask his brother what happened. i spoke it a trauma surgeon at the hospital center and i described all this to her. she said this injury could have been similar to the one suffered by natasha richardson a few years ago. she was in a skiing accident and called what's called an epidural hematoma and he was lucid afterwards and walked and spoke. people who get these injuries have intervals where they seem fine, but blood starts to gather between the covering of the brain and the skull and it becomes too much for the brain to handle. this can very well be what happened to caleb moore the other day. >> thank you. . >> they are sleeker and faster and the rise of drones is transforming the way the world fight o fights. i'm brooke baldwin.
3:13pm
the news is now. >> i never ever took what he said i was supposed to do. >> we are talking to a doctor about deer antler spray as accusations fly against ray lewis. plus, cash, prostitutes and a raid. a powerful senator facing serious accusations involving sex. and live next hour, beyonce could address the saga over lip synching. we will take you to the news conference.
3:14pm
3:15pm
3:16pm
here's something you may not have seen before. take a look. tumble weed after tumble weed rolling around here. this is south of midland, texas, blocking a road. that's how many tumble weeds are out there. my producer grew up there and said she has never seen so many tumble weeds at one time.
3:17pm
this is an example of the wacky weather across the country. chad meyers has more. >> there is extreme and then there is this. beautiful chicago dead of winter, 63 degrees at 6:00 a.m. it happened on tuesday. take topeka, kansas at a balmy 77. that's 36 degrees above average for this time of year. tuesday, telephone below in great falls, montana, but corpus christi, texas hit a high of 91. 27 states had record high temperatures on tuesday. >> the weather is getting more extreme. we had the coldest day if 20 years in january for l.a. we had wind chill factors in the rthern dakotas of 60 delow zero and just last week 76 in kansas city setting an all time record high. >> wednesday it felt like 40 below for the people in north dakota. in marathon, florida, it felt like 82. that's more than a 120 degree
3:18pm
difference. the extreme weather also packed a punch when violent tornados ripped through the southeast. atlanta yesterday at 6:00 a.m. was 68 degrees. fast forward 24 hours at 6:00 a.m. today, 33. seems everyone is talking about and feeling some kind of extreme weather this winter, but what really is going on? to get normal temperatures on a winter day, you need the jet stream to slide. the warm stays to the south. we haven't had that jet stream for many weeks. we had big troughs in the jet allowing the cold air to come to the south or rinls to allow the warm air to go to the north. this was what it was like last week. temperatures were 5 degrees and yesterday 64 in nuke. that's the ridge. that's what this winder looked like. remember we said 63 in chicago on tuesday? the high today will be 17. the wind chill is minus 1.
3:19pm
>> what's going on? why? >> the up and down of the jet. the till cal jet called zonal flow separates the cold and the warm. we haven't had much normal. just going up and down and you see the not normal temperatures, you bet not normal weather. it's not normal. temperatures and wind chill factors up into the dakotas and reaching minus 50 degrees. they don't like that. pets don't like it either. >> thank you. we want to get you an up deed out of atlanta, georgia. the middle school under lockdown after a student and teacher were shot. here's what we know. let me read this to you for immediate release with the atlanta police department. 1:50 p.m. reports a person shot in atlanta. on arrival, students have been shot outside the building and

3:26pm
you know this story line is over the next couple of weeks and she wasn't sing live with the marine corps band and standing up on the west front of the capital. did that bug you? >> not at all. just knowing how it goes in today's world, there is a lot of major vocalist that use auto tune. i wasn't even watching the performance. as aggressive as i am and knowing the ins and outs, i didn't know she was lip synching. i looked at it several times. even when she took the ear monitor out, it gave the evidence that she was singing live. if she was, she did a really good job. >> let me ask you why do this? >> there is a lot. it was cold. i could easily see it. i was thinking about it earlier. if you had to be in front of

3:40pm
halftime performance. i think of my heroes and it's the one thing when i am no longer here. it's what they're going to show. it is something i am so honored to be doing at 31 years old. when i got into the super dome, i took my shoes off and planted my feet into the ground and i ran. i'm trying to learn to live in every moment. these moments are not promised to us. i am so, so happy right now. i feel so full and this is such a huge opportunity. i take it very seriously. i'm excited. >> we see you be so, so open in social media and tweeting out rehearsal pictures and what your dances are doing. is this because of the pressure from the white house and all the attention you got from being back stage that you wanted to be completely open on anything going on for the halftime show?

>> no. i have been taking pictures and tweeting and -- not tweeting, but using my tum bler and focusing on the website for the past six months. i feel like the fans are a part of this every step of the way. >> you look beautiful. >> from right behind on "access hollywood." >> thank you for the amazing singing live. what is the pressure and the difference in pressure you felt for the inauguration versus what you feel this weekend? >> this weekend i'm performing at the halftime show. i feel like before the event was not about me. i'm excited to have done both, but now i'm on to the halftime show. thank you. >> our next question will come from the center from cnn. >> hello. >> let me say what everyone is
3:42pm
thinking. that was the first in your face of the super bowl you walking out here and nailing that national anthem. >> thank you. >> i have to ask, when anybody does the halftime show, there is a reason they use backing tracks. there is a lot of production involved and running around. did you after the whole thing that happened with the national anthem say i'm not doing any of that. i am completely going to be singing this with no backing tracks whatsoever? did all of that flack, unnecessary or not, affect what you are doing at halftime. >> i always sing live. if this inauguration was unfortunately a time where i could not rehearse with the orchestra because i was practicing for the super bowl. that was always the plan. >> as far as the grammys go, what are you going to do? >> who said i was performing at
3:43pm
the grammys? >> you don't have that much going on. the inauguration and the super bowl. >> not that much going on. i don't know if i'm performing at the grammys. >> speaking of cbs, the next question is here. >> hello. >> that clarified one thing. you were sing along with the prerecorded track. at the inauguration were you singing as well or did any sound come out of your vocal cords during the national anthem? >> typically they have you sing a prerecorded track because anything could go wrong. i did sing along with the prerecorded track. >> you were singing and the track was being played as well? >> yes. >> there is a rich tradition of this. opera singers quite often, is this something that is part of
3:44pm
the craft thaw are in? sometimes people use the prerecorded tracks? >> absolutely. thank you. >> beyonce, every year those of us who work at the super bowl have a lot of challenges and this year is no different. not at all. i have 99 problems and that's not one of them. time to move on. >> thank you. >> peter from fox sports football with you. sunday afternoon, 12:00, any random sunday in the fall. take us through you and jay z. what is your football viewing routine. >> he has to tell you himself, but i can tell you for the past few months, i'm usually on the computer pulling references and looking at my rehearsals and i have been so focused on this halftime show. i do fall asleep and wake up with a lot of football.
3:45pm
i know every little detail because of the fantasy football i have the utmost respect for the players. >> i have a question behind you here. sir? >> what will you do to relax after all of this? >> oh, my god. i can't wait. i'm going to enjoy my daughter. i'm going to enjoy my daughter. i miss her and i'm working so hard and i keep saying mommy will be done sunday at 9:00. thank you. >> from inside edition, megan. >> hey, beyonce. >> hello. >> everyone said you are it. it doesn't get bigger than you for this performance. you are a perfectionist and you care about the details. we hear it takes eight minutes for the crews to clear and get your set going. can you give us any insight into your set and how quickly you have to move with your crew. this is choreographed.
3:46pm
>> yes, it is. i think 7 1/2 minutes for the volunteers to put the stage together. it took so many months to decide what the stage was. some of the things that were in my head just wasn't possible to put together in that amount of time. i met the volunteers and they are so incredible. we are all working together. i can't give too much away, but i can say that every second matters and we are working. >> which songs? how do you decide? >> that was one of the hardest things. that was trying to condense a career into 12 minutes. all of my songs are like my children. >> beyonce, this is a personal question, but my daughter would like to know, when are you going back on tour? >> when am i going on tour? i would say soon.
3:47pm
i may have an announcement after the performance and the fans should stay tuned to see. >> we have another question from nfl.com. over here, please. >> global icons and whitney houston and michael jackson all performed. has this been an aspiration of yours? >> this has been an aspiration for me. just thank god that i am given this opportunity and like i said earlier, you work hard for these moments. i am just hoping that all of my life lessons and all of my experience, i can feel and used during the performance. >> we have one more question that we are ready to go. i believe it comes from denmark.
3:48pm
>> that's correct. i have a few questions. i can't choose. i have a, b, or c, you choose. >> i will say b. >> b? that's the fun category. what color is your tooth brush and why did you choose that color? >> i love your question. truly multicolored. it's blue. and why? blue and white, i think. blue and yellow maybe. >> there we have it. beyonce, we want to thank you for coming and we can't wait until sunday for the pepsi halftime super bowl show. >> thank you all. thank you very much. >> let me give you a backdrop. you didn't know what happened, beyonce, that was her there you go sing the national anthem after she admitted to having the back up voice track that a lot of artist dos during the presidential inauguration sing the national anthem.
3:49pm
she walked out during the news conference during the super bowl and before she answered any of the questions, you see the flag over her shoulders and she belted out the national anthem. i want to bring in two voices here with michelle turner in los angeles and michael malden who i want to go to who has been gracious enough to sing this. you knew beyonce at 15 and you were the head guy at columbia records and signed destiny's child currently with ceo artistic control group. we watched this together and you said you got goose bumps. >> i got goose bumps. it was amazing. what better way to say this is what i do. before she came on, we were talking. she is that talent. she does work hard. when she says that, i can say being there even at 15, i remember going to houston when she was 14 and watching the
3:50pm
group and trying to decide whether or not we were going to sign them. even then, amazing. >> she was transparent about that saying she didn't have the time to practice amazing. >> she was transparent, she was saying she didn't have enough time to rehearse. if she didn't have some sort of backup vocal track, that would have been unprofessional. is that right? >> absolutely. i was talking to ricky minor who has actually produced nine super bowl pregame and half-time events. and what he told me was, he also -- i'd be remiss to say he produced whitney houston's a star-spangled banner. it's like splitting hairs,
3:51pm
brooke. there is a different. if approximate you're lip syncing, nothing is coming out. but he said, yeah, it would be unprofessional if you didn't do that because of the magnitude of the moment. >> okay. this has been so part of this national conversation, whether you think it's silly or not, so many people have been talking about it. nischelle turner, thank you. michael, thank you so much for hanging out with me. here we are, on the eve of super bowl xlvii. cnn is live in the thick of things in new orleans with our take on the biggest event in the city. how it became such a cultural phenomenon as we welcome rachel nichols as she hosts a bleacher report saturday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. on cnn.

this case caught our attention. handcuffed, interrogated for six hours at seven years of age. this is what a mother says new york city police officers did to her son because he allegedly -- wait for it -- stole 5 bucks. she was horrified when she saw this image of him at the police precinct. what did she do? took a picture. come to find out, her son didn't do it. her family is suing for $250 million towards actions for false accusations. sunny hostin, on the case with me. they say he stole the $5 but handcuffing a kid, is this even legal? >> you know, it's interesting, brooke. this isn't an isolated incident.
3:56pm
this does happen and this isn't something, in my view, that is that unusual and you know what, administrators do call the police and very rarely do kids commit very serious felony crimes. when you protect a child, certainly the child's interests should come first. so this was something that shouldn't have happened, in my view. it does happen across the country. i suspect this is a case that won't go to trial. this is a case that will likely settle out of court. it's something that we need to examine. when you put a child in this situation, what does that say? does it scar them from life? probably. >> this is from the child. the new york police department
3:57pm
is not commenting on the incident. there is a statement from them. we are barred from discussing details involving a minor but that doesn't stop a plaintiff from distorting facts. nonetheless, an internal review is under way. sunny hostin, we'll leave it there. thank you very much. on the case with me today and as i let you go, want to recrack this singing here. beyonce, a couple days ahead of the super bowl as she is performing in new orleans at half time. because of the bit of incident, if you want to call it that a couple of mondays ago, the voice recorded track, she has walked out and proven she's got it. ♪ o say, can you see by the dawn's early light ♪ ♪ what so proudly we hailed
